Doesn't have to be the same WU. Just find similar WU with similar steps and stuff. Though that's hard cus you never know what you're going to get and you'll slow the project down so they'll hate you for it.

you can almost do it that way, but even within a project there can be some big fluctuations in frame times based on the run, clone and gen. That said the frame times can even vary just based on which step is being run.

Being able to run the same Project run/clone/gen makes for a more reliable comparison.

OK, so I was able to capture a unit, then get it to continue from where it left off.

I will need to do some work in regards to units being past deadline so that they don't send themselves back.

I'll detail what I did this weekend and make sure that it's going to work more than once. So far looking good.

Cool! Thanks for putting in the effort Tim_H! I think a scientific and standardized approach to implementing fah frame times would be an extremely valuable method for measuring highly-scaled multi-threaded performance in CPU reviews going forward, so this would be a big deal if you guys can make it happen.
